Face ParTAY

I would never normally do this....but my sweet sister Grace linked herself up to a blog party today at "The Stories of A to Z" about sharing your before & after of your morning makeup regimen... so I thought I'd give it a try. Most days I go without makeup (not because I look good without it, but because I'm just that lazy) unless I have a reason to get out. Therein lies the danger of being in-between jobs!

So let's give this thing a go...

My scary, very shiny "before" right after I got back from an hour long walk:

And now after a good, clean shower. Not much better!
I look like a greasy monkey! Ha! :)

Ta da! Much better I think. :)

Here's what I use:

From L-R: Neutrogena lip gloss, Loreal mascara,
Jason (all natural) face scrubble, Aveeno lotion,
and the best...Jane Iredale makeup. I love this line
of mineral makeup. It's known for its clean ingredients
and amazing coverage while at the same time not looking
heavy. Also a favorite of mine is my makeup brushes that
I got at none other than....Michael's! They're high quality
paint brushes (Lowe Cornell) and are made up of all-natural
boar bristles just like high-end makeup brushes...but
for a fraction of the cost!

If you're reading this and are participating in the party...have fun girls! I've already viewed many of your entries and you're all stunning! :)
